We have finished all the pre writing/reading work gathering, organizing & using a variety of resources to assist us as writers for our first research report of the year in class. Many are moving to writing in the Book Creator App on the iPads. Which we know assists them by typing which n reduces their frustration with legibility and paper and pencil tasks. . The app also allows for pictures, videos, diagraming and live links which makes for an interesting and more interactive report.
As we move into the actual writing of the report we needed another mini lesson on paragraph writing . So, the children completed a simple fact/supporting foldable to add to their writer's notebook.
Then went back to work on their reports!
